Bush Mechanics was an awesome series showing how a little outback ingenuity can go a long way..


A great Aussie show, just amazing what can be fixed with fencing wire, grass & wood  :o

Darn, just missed it. Was working on the Z.
Replaced the rack boots and tie rod ends.

It was the first episode I have seen. Nothing spectacular, but it's a show purely on classic cars which is pretty rare. After watching so much top gear its a little strange to sit through a 'normal' car show that's semi serious.

No Falcon Left Behind.


A little slow and awkward but good to see Canadian's (I think by accent) fixing up an old Aussie V8.

If anyone is into hemi sixes check out Mirabito performance on youtube. He does some great engine builds and its quite amusing. Just a warning though, there is alot of language...

This guy takes cynicism and sarcasm to level 10.

 

It does highlight how overrated events like these can be, along with Las Vegas in general which seems to be the epicenter of philistinism.

Warehouse full of Corvettes. As much as I like them, I'd love to have the same thing stacked with early rotaries, Nissan S30z's, 510's, Skylines of every era, you get the idea.

Holy crap! My wallet is bleeding just looking at that list - what an impressive collection of cars that will be! They've got pretty much all of my bucket list cars. Might be a good spot for a Sydney drive day.

Looking forward to going there when it opens! I find the lack of 90s Japanese cars a bit odd though - none of the GTRs, RX7s or Supras. Could probably get a nice one of each if you cut out a couple of the late model exotics.

If you go there I suggest you don't touch the cars... Tony mightn't like it.

They have Edward Lees old 240z, Matt Drago's 240z and they recently got an SP RX-7. I'm sure they have more 90s Japanese metal also.

Oh, I missed the RX7 when I was looking at the list.

 

But I'm not sure the list is complete actually, they've posted pictures of an F40 and F50 but neither are on there.

Good video on the 510, they shot down the BMW copy myth and also the Mercedes engine design copy nonsense...

 

Lots of praise for the 510, values have been slow to appreciate. Perhaps because so many were sold here and still quite a few around. I think they will start to appreciate soon enough though.
